Vampire Diaries Logic Fails For Season 4, Episode 7: “My Brother’s Keeper”
The Vampire Diaries is a show where witches can bring people back from the dead, vampires kiss humans instead of ripping their throats out, and werewolves have silky smooth chests when they haven’t transformed. And we accept all of this without blinking an eye. Yet it’s the little things that make us scoff and say, “That would never happen.” Check out the biggest logic fails from Season 4, Episode 7, “My Brother’s Keeper.”
Klaus lets Stefan off the hook. For some reason we still don’t get, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) didn’t want anyone knowing about the vampire cure. Fine. He threatened Stefan (Paul Wesley) with mass murder should the younger Salvatore let the secret slip out. Suddenly, everyone and their brother — such as Damon (Ian Somerhalder) — knows and Klaus just shrugs it off with a sort of half-nelson, bro hug moment? Maybe it’s just because Klaus is in luvre.
Miss Mystic Falls is just letting anyone win now. A lot of people are thinking Professor Shane (David Alpay) and the rest of the (hopefully less creepy) judges handed April (Grace Phipps) the crown because her father had just died. And while the sympathy vote is a nice idea, it certainly didn’t earn Elena (Nina Dobrev) the crown the year before. Those other girls must be fuming. They’ve been slaving away on committees and doing community service and suddenly this girl who’s been in town for a week (roughly?) and keeps asking where Rebekah (Claire Holt) wins Miss Mystic Falls? Shenanigans.
There are murderers in Mystic Falls (who aren’t vampires, we mean)? OK, a lot of people go missing due to animal attacks, but Mystic Falls has a normal, human serial killer and no one knows about it? Shouldn’t his picture be splashed on every newspaper and shouldn’t they have formed a new Town Council to deal with the problem? And since when is non-Ripper Stefan this OK with killing humans?
House swap Yeah, we get it. Damon and Elena had to end up in front of a roaring fire with bourbon pre-coitus. Very picturesque. But wasn’t there a better way to get her there than having Elena move into the Salvatores? That means Stefan had to move out. No, no, no. Just have Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) move in with Matt (Zach Roerig), so they can still have bromantic sleepovers. See? It’s simple. One person moves instead of three.
Vampirercise Frustrated by his breakup with Elena, Stefan decides to head to the woods for some pushups. He has super strength. How many of those does he have to do before he even breaks a sweat? Personally, we think he should’ve taken up Damon on his offer of drunken debauchery. Now that’s how you deal with a breakup.
